"I am always ready to help you. My sympathies are ever with you. I will radiate joy, peace, thought-currents of love to you. I will inspire you. But I cannot do the work for you. You yourself will have to do the work. The struggle and exertion must come from your side. You will have to place yourself each footstep in the spiritual ladder. Always remember this point well."
-Sri Swami Sivananda
